2 0 2 2 • WRAPS • 39 G R A PH I C S - PR O.C O M A very Dennison Wrap Like A King nalists show how a unique use of color, light and wrapping lms can make a meaningful impact and drive visual innovation. Epic Wraps, HTX Customs, and Ceramic Kings share the stories behind their concepts. PROJECT: Cyber 3 Tesla | Tesla Model 3 BY: Epic Wraps | @wrappedbyepic PRODUCTS USED: Avery Dennison MPI 1105 EZRS; Avery Dennison DOL 138OZ Cast Matte Laminate The concept for this design was a play on Tesla's cutting-edge Cyber Truck. We wanted to encompass the geometric de- sign elements, while creating something unique to the Tesla Model 3. To create the intended illusion, our team needed to cam- ouage the natural body lines of the car, while still keeping the integrity of its shape. Avery Dennison Matte Laminate was an absolute no-brainer here, as the nish is unparalleled in reducing the visibility of organic body lines on the vehicle. In the design process, we made new body lines to keep the geometric feel and created a high- contrast illusion with the appearance of a shiny, metallic nish (this is matte wrap). We knew going into this, the wrap would only be a success if everything lined up. The team physically masked the vehicle and traced the body lines to create an ac- curate template. This ensured us that each panel would line up and the integrity of the artwork was preserved. Even one body panel reecting the natural curvature of the car would ruin our optical illusion. Wraps Project WRAP ROYALTY'S STORIES ABOUT WINNING CONCEPTS S TO R Y A N D I M AG E S C O U R T E SY AV E R Y D E N N IS O N PROJECT: Change Through Prog- ress | Dodge Challenger Hellcat BY: HTX Customs | @htxcustoms (Designed by Corsa Auto Design) PRODUCTS USED: Avery Dennison Conform Chrome Silver; Avery Dennison DOL 1460Z This design features pivotal moments in Black American history com- bined with a modern abstract art style. Featuring different creations by black inventors, different patterns and textiles found in black culture, and prominent black gures from various moments in American history, this design is rich with detail and depth. A multitude of powerful quotes are embedded into the design as well. We used Avery Dennison Conform Chrome Silver and laminated with DOL 1460Z. PROJECT: Boxster Martini with a Twist | Porsche Boxster BY: Ceramic Kings | @ceramickings.van (Designed by Corsa Auto Design) PRODUCTS USED: Avery Dennison Supreme Wrapping Film Satin Silver Metallic; Avery Dennison DOL 1380Z; Avery Dennison DOL 1460Z The Martini livery is one of the most recognized liveries in the wrap world. This iteration puts a unique spin on the classic theme to give it some newfound originality. The de- sign takes inspiration from the classic lines of Martini liveries and pairs it with the lesser known 'Hippie' liv- ery that adorned the Porsche 917 back in 1970. This creative fusion combines smooth owing lines with abstract psychedelic shapes to en- hance and create new features within the Boxster's body lines. To make it even more distinct, the design fea- tures a non-traditional color scheme (matched to the Porsche emblem), with the main Martini stripe breaking up the base into a two-tone black/silver scheme. Upon a closer look, each color has its own special texture – the red is a crushed silk, gold is rough metal, silver is weathered steel, black is textured leather, and gray is smooth stone.
